Recovering America’s Wildlife Act Just Another Government Fraud?

Ammoland files a report about how the House Subcommittee on Natural Resources will take up discussion on the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act. Passage would mean billions of dollars from royalties paid by gas and oil companies. Most applaud this measure believing it will be good for “conserving” fish and wildlife and access to recreational land, but will it?

The red flag that shot up for was this bit of text: “Our nation’s fish and wildlife are among its most valuable resources, along with clean air, water, healthy forests and agricultural lands that support all of us,” stated Virgil Moore, President of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and Director of Idaho Fish and Game. “Today we find ourselves at a critical crossroads and face a challenge that could alter our children’s and grandchildren’s opportunities to enjoy these resources. By investing in our State Wildlife Action Plans, which serve as a blueprint for restoring and managing the most sensitive imperiled species within our state’s borders, we will be ensuring future generations can enjoy our rich wildlife heritage.”

Note that there is not one single mention of the recreational acts of hunting, fishing, and trapping, And, you won’t read or hear about them either. Those pushing this fake act are doing it for the money and the furtherance of their agendas to ban hunting, fishing, and trapping. As a matter of fact, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies lobbied Congress a few years back in order that they can have a piece of the Pittman/Robertson and Dingell/Johnson Excise Tax, paid in large part by hunters, fishermen, and trappers, to promote their anti-hunting, non-consumptive, environmental programs that work completely contrary to the North American Model of Wildlife Management.

Support this bill if you want to, but I see it as a worthless bit of tripe that will pull the wool over the eyes of many, many hunters and fishermen. Isn’t that really what the goal is?

What future is there in funding an agency whose objective is to destroy your heritage?

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!
